Super Cool Bugs in my Yard

We found some really cool bugs in our yard last week..first this lady bug. I wish I got better pics of it..thought I had the camera set on macro but in fact had turned macro off. Plus she was bookin' it so fast it was hard to capture her. She was orange w/ lots of spots...




And then this guy was amazing. We mostly see the green stink bugs here..and I found a brown one the other day..but this guy was really beautiful. He actually sparkled like he was irridescent w/ a turquoise and green. The turquoise didn't show up in the pics..but you can kinda see the sparkle.



I was so amazed to see the red on this little guy. I never knew they were so colorful. I guess he can come in lots of colors and is actually called a Pentatomidae

Cool bugs. I see a lot of these guys in my yard from time to time. Being in Maui, you must see these guys a lot as well. What camera are you using?

The pictures came out great, the colours are so bright!! I'm not a bug person so if I'm looking at them, I much prefer it in pictures. Thanks!

Great pix, I've never seen one with red like that either. The ones I've seen are usually iridescent. Thanks for sharing!
